What is an 11 year old doing unloading a handgun? A 9 year old Wisconsin boy was shot and injured by his 11 year old brother:
A 9-year-old Spring Valley, Wis., boy is in the hospital after being accidentally shot by his 11-year-old brother on Saturday, officials said.
The boy, whose identity has not been released, was shot in the leg about 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Spring Valley in western Wisconsin, according to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office.
The boy's 11-year-old brother was believed to be unloading a handgun when it accidentally went off, wounding the 9-year-old, officials said.
